CARI Announces 2023-2025 Faculty Fellows

The University of Alabama’s Collaborative Arts Research Initiative has announced its newest cohort of faculty fellows. The 2023–2025 faculty fellows, chosen from a large and competitive applicant pool, are:

  • Ellary Draper, School of Music, Music Therapy
  • Allison Grant, Art and Art History
  • John Haley, Journalism and Creative Media
  • Michael Innis-Jimenez, American Studies
  • Soledad Sanchez, Theatre and Dance
  • Merinda Simmons, Religious Studies
  • Sara-Maria Sorentino, Gender and Race Studies

These fellows will participate in a collaborative arts research community for the next two years. The CARI Faculty Fellowship aims to help fellows diversify the impact of their work and to develop new interdisciplinary research. The creative lab and collaborative meeting space in Maxwell Hall serves as a place for these faculty to workshop ideas, hold meetings, and informally interact with other faculty.
